MRC to hear license revocation response in Running Aces-Canterbury dispute

MRC to hear license revocation response in Running Aces-Canterbury dispute | Racing Regulatory Issues | Scoop.it

The group that operates Running Aces Harness Park will go before the Minnesota Racing Commission on Thursday to respond to a request that its operating license be revoked.


The request was made last month by the Minnesota Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, which represents horsemen at Canterbury Park. It claims that North Metro Harness Initiative, operator of Running Aces, has failed to honor the terms of its license application by halting payments to Canterbury’s purse fund. NMHI stopped the payments last August and has sued the HBPA and Canterbury, seeking to end its financial obligation.
